DAS BOTON www.myspace.com/dasboton (Chicago - Six Gun Lover Records)
DAS BOTON is Billy Dolan, Ryan Rapsys and Karl Ropp. Billy played guitar in ace legendary Sub Pop Records bands FIVE STYLE and HEROIC DOSES in the 1990s, alongside John Herndon (TORTOISE), Leroy Bach, Jeremy Jacobsen (EUPHONE, THE LONESOME ORGANIST) and Nick Macri (EUPHONE). If you’ve not heard these bands you need to educate yo’self right now yo!! They only recorded some of the best records ever released on Sub Pop, in my opinion.
Billy Dolan’s style is unique. He plays like a post-punk Hendrix, with a sound and style that has influenced most of the people I’ve ever met who play guitar. Ryan Rapsys also played drums in EUPHONE and HEROIC DOSES and played all the instruments on Euphone’s first two eps “Breaking Parole” and “Euphone”. He also just happens to be one of the best drummers you will ever see. Das Boton plays instrumental, angular, fluid and organic post-punk rock songs, with an emphasis on old-fashioned good fun!!
This will be Das Boton’s first tour in the UK and Europe and the first time Billy has ever visited UK shores.
CISSY www.myspace.com/cissysound (Leeds UK)
A bunch of excitable party people from Leeds, some of whom have played in bands such as The Dragon Rapide, The Lapse, Beards and Origami. Polyrhythmic, raucous, electrotastic elastic art-pop songs from the death-beds of Fela Kuti, James White, Captain Beefheart, Minutemen, The Meters and Talking Heads. Cissy have toured the UK and Europe with Origami (San Francisco) and played gigs with Cryptacize, James Chance et Les Contortions, DAT Politics, Fulborn Teversham and more.
DAS BOTON and CISSY have recorded songs for a split album, to be released on SIX GUN LOVER RECORDS (www.sixgunlover.com) in 2009.
